Help Prevent Crime In Our Neighborhood

The Sheriff’s Department has reminded all communities to be proactive about keeping
our neighborhoods, homes and cars safe and secure. Part of being diligent is locking our
cars, keeping our driveway lights on from dusk till dawn; watch out for our neighbors and report suspicious activities to the police. If you know that your neighbor will be away for a period of time, help them out by periodically checking their property.    For more helpful tips, please visit the Manatee County Sheriff’s Website.
